What movies did you see today?

Indeed, I have about 400 dvds and only a handful of comedies.

I love em, but they're just not the same when you're alone. Drama's on the other hand are more enjoyable when I can just soak them up on my own.

I won't let my thread die after 44 pages of good quality movie opinions. :-)

I recently saw The Day After Tommorrow and The Island, I enjoyed these movies a lot considering how much negative hype they got. I went into Day After Tommorrow not expecting much, and although it wasn't anything more than a mindless action movie I found it to be enjoyable. The Island was even more surprising, I don't understand why this movie was such a box office disaster. Fine acting and action sequences coupled with a nice plot in a future that doesn't seem all that over-the-top or distant.

just finished watchin Serpico, al pacino did an excellent job and the movie was overall very good. i was a little confused as to why some parts were in the movie, like his first girlfriend, didnt really seem like she had any real role in the movie although it seemed like she would at first. but like i said overall very good

8/10

I do want to see 4 Brothers, but besides that I'd have to agree with you. It's a down season for flicks right now.

Hmmmmmmm.... I too liked The Day After Tomorrow quite a bit - methinks I will have to check out this Island movie since someone who also like TDAT says it was worth a watch... Thanks Chef (although if it blows I will be pissed at you) ;-D

I thought Day After Tomorrow wasn't as bad as it was made out to be... and I didn't dig The Island at all. So I dunno.

Anyway, here's what I've been watchin' since this threads' near death (I already saved this sucker the first time, someone else had to do it).

Primal Fear = good stuff. I hadn't seen it before, for some odd reason. Even Richard Gere did a good job in this movie... and for those not in the know, Gere annoys the hell outta me.

I was at Blockbuster, parousing the 'ol movies... Home Grown looked interesting... had a decent cast (Billy Bob is kick-ass), what seemed like a potentially decent plot... eh.

Wimbledon was on one of the movie channels. I've had a crush on Kirsten Dunst since I was like... 13 years old... so I watched it. It was alright, I 'spose... but that may be my Dunst-bias kickin' in... 'cause y'know... everything she does is kickass.

Magnolia was interesting... I don't think I liked it, but I don't think I didn't like it either. Tom Cruise was alright - for some reason his stage-persona in the movie (when he's selling his dating-product) is how I picture him acting when the cameras aren't around.

I thought Levity was pretty good. Has two of my faves (Billy Bob & Kirsten Dunst?! Gee wiz!) in it... plus some other goodies - Morgan Freeman and Holly Hunter.

I tried to watch XXX on TV last night, but fell asleep about a half hour into it.

I'm gonna rent some more movies tomorrow (Unlimited Blockbuster rentals - w00t...). I'm thinkin' Pauly Shore is Dead and... whatever else looks interesting.

this movie is what made me an edward norton fan. he was amazing and the ending was a total surprise.

P.S. youre not the only one who think Gere is annoying. he has that dumb ass surprised look in every movie, ya know where he like stops, looks down or around a little, squints his eyes, and then the movie cuts to his "memory".

The Jackal is the only movie i like with him in it besides primal fear and thats only because bruce willis kicks ass.

And the only reason I like the Jackal is because Bruce Willis blows Jack Black's fat ass away! Seriously...I may be the only person in the world, but I hate Jack Black.
